Mediterranean diet simplified



The Mediterranean diet is :
  • vegetables
  • fish and other seafood
  • small amounts of meat and chicken
  • wholegrains
  • fresh fruits 
  • nuts
  • legumes
  • olive oil
  • red wine in small amounts
It is healthy because:
  • the foods contain high amounts of fibre
  • a monounsaturated fat is the main source of fat
  • full of antioxidants
  • fresh food
  • food is prepared simply
  • herbs and spices are used instead of salt to flavor foods
  • there is less red meat than in a typical western diet
  • there is more fish and fruit and vegetables than in a typical western diet

  2. Seems like more and more people are realising the benefits of eating the mediterranean diet. I basically eat like this but without any gluten and try to minimize grains. It really helps my joint pain and dryness in Sjogren's Syndrome.
